Laborers Pasi Here On Way To

"Is it a wlae thus to overlook the

Sooner Or Later
' The Hawaii Shiopo aays, along the
same line:
"Success for the planters' plan to
Import Porte Ricen or Filipino labor

letter of uncertainty. Anyone who

ean see that the plan stand little
chance of success.
'We believe iirmiv that the plant

or China, or both, for their supply
iif laborer. The reason for ao be
lieving are because, in the firt plnce,
the importation of Oriental require
jiit appeal to be made to the I'nited

the second place, because Japanese or
Ctiinese are best suited for labor in

the Islands and the fret that the bill.
.' the population of the Islnud is in
eligible to citUenship come in for a
roasting at the hands of I'rnf. Ynug
ban MacCaughey of the College of 11a
nsii, in au article written by him for
"School and Society", published bv
the Science Prea in New York. Wry
many in Hawaii will fail to agree
with all that I'rofeasor lac( aughey
says. His article in full is:
"The complex racial problems of
Hawaii are little known to the people
of the mainland I'nited States. Mil
wali, remote and isolated in the broad
ranges of the North Pacific, ha at
traded the tourist and the commercial
adventurer, rather than the sociologist
and the schoolman. A phrase currently
used in Hawaii, and sometimes repeated
on the mainland, is to the effect thnt
' we have no race problem in Hawaii. '
This phrase is fundamentally unsound,
fallacious, and befogging. What ia
really meant i that no violent racial
antganisma have been given an econ ,
omic opportunity to express themselves
in Hawaii. ' Race problems' are, to a
very considerable dejrree, economic in
nature. In a country where the life of
the people is dominated by a feuda
liMic capitalism, and where 'ehefl(p
labor' haa effectively driven out the
higher types of labor, racial problems
"re apparently submerged.
Bewildering and Complex
"On the' other hand, a more correct
statement would be that Hawaii a
polyglot, polychrome microcosm -con-taina
within its tiny population of
2"0,000 people, a most bewildering'Bnd
intricate complex of racial and inter
racial reactions. A veritable test-tube,
into which numerous mobile element
have been collected. The native Ha
waiian (rapidly vanishing), and a
few South Sea Islanders represent the
Polynesian elements. The overwhelm
ing Asiatic population comprises Jap
anese, Chinese, and Korean; over half
the total population is Japanese'. Span
ish, Portuguese, Porto Bican, and Fili
pino represent the'Latin and Malayan
types. Russians, Oermans, a few Scan
dinaviana, a few negroes are the re
maining elements in the motley horde
of 'cheap' laborers that have been im
ported by the sugar planters from the
back alley of the world. This com
posite laboring mass of human ma
terial is ernwned by a small group of
capitalists, managers, business and pro
feasionat men, who are almost wholly
American and English. The Oermans
due to their dishonorable plotting and
espionage during the present war, are
now in process of eviction, although
they formerly constituted a formidable
colonv, a aolid block of 'Kaiser worshp
per. '
Chiefs and Sugar Barons
"In olden times, and until com para
tively recently, there was no middle
class in Hawaii. The chiefs owned
everything; the common people were
slaves. The feudalism of primitive Ha
waii was rapidly displaced by the 'au
gar barons' and their gangs of coolie
contract laborers. At present, under
the democratizing influences of the
great social and political movements ot
the twentieth century, a middle class
is slowly making its appearance.
"Today the thoughtful people of Ha
wnii schoolmen and others realize
more clearly than ever before, the ne
cessity for really Americanizing the
boys and girls who are growing up on
American soil. Theae children, despite
their alien parentage and all of the
unfavorable and uu American influence
of their homes through the agency
i of the American public schools must
! lie converted into genuine and useful
! American citizens. The 'middle class'
i of Hawaii will be built up very largely
I from these native born boys and girls.
"'For ninny decades the public
schools of Hawaii were financially
starved ami crippled I'ulilic sentiment
among the 'interests' was ugainst 'too
much education' for the masses. The
educated boy would not work in the
icids at coolie pay, an. I live in a shack.
An educated girl would not hoe sugar
cane with tier baby strapped to her
back, as her peasant mother had done.
"The private schools, designed as
'finishing schools' for the sons ami
daughters of the well-to-do white popu
lation, received hearty support, and
around them have gathered some of the
best traditions of the old aristocracy of
wealth and learning. Indeed, when the
Pacific Coast boasted of nothing but
rude mining camps, the sons and daugh
ter of the (lolden West were sent to
Hawaii's private schools fur their edu
Rapidly Improving
"The modern American democratic
ideal of American education for ' al'
the children uf all the people' is now
makiug rapid headway in Hawaii. There
has been and is a phenomenal increase
in new buildings, floor space, class
mums, equipment, and teachers. Com

Pre vocational, manual and industrial
training ia well organised, with trained
teachers and supervisors on each island.
Practically all of the larger schools,
urban and rural, 1iave. school shop and
ehool kitchen. In the latter lunches
are prepared by the pupils, under su
pervision, and sold at cost. At some
school ainny hundred lunches are sold
daily. In the shops all sorts of school

and sold at rost. In this way the man

"The school and home garden move
ment is now thoroughly organised
throughout the island, with a total of
several thousand home gardens. Prlxe

district and the newspapers give much
publicity to the garde campaign. In
asmuch a garden in Hawaii can he in
tensity cultivated all the year round,
the Importance of thia movement, in
increasing the amount of home grown
food, is obivous.
"During the past spring the Boys'
Working Reserve haa beeu effectively
organized in conjunction with the pub
lic School. At present a large precen
tuge of the able bodied boy' pnpnla
tion of Hawaii Is enlisted and at work
in this important branch of the home

also in,4rogrrss at the present time.
Poor Boys' Colleges)
"Public high school have been e
tabliahed on all of the larger islands
of the group during the past decade;
previously there were but two in the
Territory. These 'poor boys' colleges '
are potent agencies for Americanira
tion, and are steadilv growing in size
and educational significance. Thev of
fer general .college preparatorv. scien

The vocational and home-training work
is expanding rapidly during the present
period. ..
"Although not a part of the public
schools, the Territorial Fair is truly a
publie educational institution of large
potentialities for the Americanization
of Hawaii. A great variety of educa
tional exhibit are made, in addition
to the standard agricultural and indn
trial exhibits. The Territorial Fair 1
a democratic Institution; it stands for
the slowly emerging middle clsss, and
should have a permanent place in the
rebuilding of Hawaii's rural life.
Four Bad factors
"There are four factors, aside from
the basis one of nationality, that mili
tate atrainst Americanization in Hawaii.
.nd that tend to nullify the work of
the publie sehools: ,
"I. The difficulty of purchasing
farm land. There is very little farm
land not already under the complete
"ontrol of the agricultural corporations
' nd that little is leased at exorbitant
-entals. It is practically impossible
'or a white man to go info farming in
Hawaii, as he doe on the mainland.
There are practically no homes and no
farm in rural Hawaii ,as these terms
are used on the mainland. There are
only corporations, and peasant lessee.
"2. The Japanese language schools.
hich nre largely under the control of
he Fhiddhists, are attended by nearly
nil of the Japanese children. These'
schools are narrow, superstitious shrines
'or Mikado worship. Buddhism is
Snslcallv undemocratic and un-American.
So long as ninety-five percent of
the Japanese population of Hawaii re
nu.ins Ruddhiat, so long will American
zution be retarded. The American de
mocracy i founded on the ideals and
practises of the Christian home.
"8. A preponderate Asiatic popula
n which is ineligible to citizenship
Thia arbitrary and impassable bar to
the privileges and responsibilities of
eitixcnaliip which excludes only the
Asiatic and admits all others, no mat
ter bow debased or mongrel is justly
resented by the Orientals, und necessar
ilv Impedes the true Americanization of
their American-horn children. The nat
iiralization plan advocated by Dr. Sid
ney (lulick w hick the present writer
fully advocates would undoubtedly rec
tify tin' present unfortunate and un
fair sitiiHtion.
"4. The continual importation, by
the agricultural corporations, of floods
of cheap, illiterate, ignorant, and of
ten criminal peasants, mostly males, of
the lowest classes, from auch regions
as the Philippines and Porto Rieo. They
have been brought in in such numbers,
and permitted to live under such con
ditions, thut renl assimilation ha been
almost impossible. They tend to de
grade and depreciate the whole body
of the population. By thus keeping the
labor market overstocked with the low
est grades of human material, the up
building of anything like the American
home has been very greatly retarded.
Hawaii will never be ' 100 percent Am
erican' until the artificially stimulated
iMinsraiion me territorial govern
ment hns borne, directly or indirectly,
the whole expense of immigration), is
stopped for a period of time sufficient
ly long t enable the public schools,
missions, and other social agencies to
truly Americanize the present popula
tion." f '""" I wna.i II Higclow ac
